Though it is tempting to forgo the Game Ball of the Week award after a tough loss like what we saw against the Lions I think there were some worthy performances. Back away from the ledge Panther fans this is a process and we are just getting started. I say enjoy the ride!
Our Game Ball of the Week nominees are:
KR Kealoha Pilares - Pilares returned a kick off for a TD for the first Panther return TD since 2003
RB Jonathan Stewart - Stewart was targeted 6 times and caught all 6 balls for a total of 87 yards
RB DeAngelo Williams - Williams collected 73 yards on just 10 carries for a 7.3 ypc average; he added 32 yards on a single reception as well
LB Jordan Senn - Senn filled in a LB and forced a fumble and added 6 tackles
LB James Anderson - Anderson had 10 tackles, 2 passes defensed and an INT
S Charles Godfrey - Godfrey logged 8 tackles, 2 passes defensed and an INT as well
DE Thomas Keiser - Keiser came off the practice squad bench two weeks ago and logged 5 tackles, 2 sacks, 2 tackles for loss and 2 QB hurries.
Like I said we have some very deserving performances but I'm not going to single any out at the moment so as to not skew the poll but it think you have a tough job ahead. So there are your choices for Panthers Game Ball of the Week. The poll is after the jump...
